We don’t shy away from money talk.
Financial wellness can be the difference between loving or regretting a career in medicine, yet it’s not included in a doctor’s training. Meanwhile, misconceptions about a physician’s wealth and income make it difficult to have personal finance conversations after medical school and residency, too.

When we shy away from money talk, a doctor’s love of medicine can falter all too quickly. Attend is here to change that.
